Hot weather makes Shaker One crave juicy summer fruits…..strawberries, melons, all so refreshing and juicy. One bite of the deep pink flesh of a ripe watermelon brings me back to being a kid in the summer…..sitting on the curb eating it right out of the rind, feeling the juice drip down our arms. And for some of us, trying to duck out of the way of our brother’s seed spitting skills.
I’d brought home a baby watermelon with the very best of intentions. Fruit salad you shall be my dear!
Until it was 6pm and 85 degrees. Somebody needed a watermelon martini. A few minutes later, with the help of my trusty immersion blender~et voila!
3 shots vodka (I used Titos)
3 shots strained fresh watermelon juice
3/4 shot St. Germain
dash of lemon juice
Shake over ice, pour into glass and garnish with a bit of the lovely flesh. I promise this one won’t drip down your arm.
